Added some new livestock yesterday. Tank now houses:

-7 Rummynose
-5 lemon tetras
-6 CPD's
-6 Otos
-6 Dicrossus Maculata
-3 Amano shrimp
- possibly one SS CRS (haven't seen it in over a month)

Really liking the checkerboards, nice to have something with some personality and attitude rather than just a bunch of dithers frantically swimming around

This is a work of bushy art.

Were you ever able to locate the CRS?

Thanks! Still haven't seen the CRS, only saw it once about 3 weeks after I put it in, been at least 5 weeks since then. Presumed dead or cichlid food now. Don't ask why I tossed it in there haha, was a late night "idea"

Thanks orchidman, downoi has spread like fire, however it's gotten so tall and left untrimmed I'm fairly sure its past the point of no return.

Hi,
Pictures of the tank very beautiful. Dicrossus Maculatus is more than interesting, I'm curious as shrimp understand!

If you want to be achieve something in life, work hard... nothing comes for free!

thanks again clau. dicrossus are very interesting fish! very happy with them

the shrimp in there are amanos, and will actually try stealing food from any of the fish in there...there are quite large, had them for about 2 years now

Hi,
I am 6 Amano (2 females + 4 males) are resourceful and shrimp with a big appetite for food, efficient in fighting algae. Your Amano shrimp, have tried to reproduce, it takes special conditions this?

Lemon fry count now up to 5! Seeing more almost everyday it seems.....can't imagine there's too many more hiding. Taking tiny bits of flake already, the largest swims right out with the bigger fish!

Been awhile since an update, tank is still on cruise control, pulled the co2 several weeks ago.

Lemon fry/juvie count is now 13-14 from what looks like two different batches. Pretty amazed that many made it with zero effort.

Dicrossus are beginning to near sexual maturity, alot of color starting to show, little bit of agression between them as well.

I'll toss up some pics later today, hard to capture their color but wow, really a site that can only be appreciated in person. Really hoping for some spawning. For wild fish I thought they would be a more finicky than they are.
